The Licensing Expo Opening Night Party returns this year, following the packed and hugely successful event in 2022.
Licensing International says tickets are now available for this important networking event, exclusively for Licensing Expo guests, and located a short walk from the show floor.
“It was a no brainer to bring the Opening Night Party back this year after seeing what a huge success it was last year,” says Ella Haynes, event director, Licensing Expo. “We’re excited to reveal the great talent we’ve got lined up for 2023. The event was at full capacity last year so we strongly encourage people to take advantage of the Early Bird pass to guarantee access on the night.”
As with last year’s Opening Night Party, this event will again be held at the Daylight Beach Club, an outdoor venue with a stage and where guests congregate around a luxurious private swimming pool in the Mandalay Bay Resort.
The concert last year was very focused on rap and hip hop, as licensing agency Brand Liaison kicked off their 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop campaign. The night featured an epic concert by several artists headlined by hip hop pioneers The Sugarhill Gang (seen in photo at top).
The 2023 event will feature a secret musical guest to be announced soon, and the concert ticket price will also include complimentary food and drinks while supplies last, followed by a cash bar later in the evening.
The Licensing Expo is free to attend, while party passes are currently on sale at an Early Bird price for $75, but will increase to $125 on March 31 and are first come, first served. The event is for registered Licensing Expo attendees and exhibitors aged 21 and over. Licensing Expo badges must be shown at the door.
